The spray-painted swastika, which was done backwards, was cleaned off the star by Saturday.

The former Celebrity Apprentice host and current GOP presidential candidate who was honoured with the star in 2007, has been the target of graffiti attacks before. In September 2015, someone put a big yellow “X” on top of his star.
